Interim CEO Don Berry To Lead The Organization

Nicole Hart CEO and female combat veteran motivational speaker

Nicole Hart, Founding CEO of ARVets.

ARVets, a statewide comprehensive non-profit for veteran services, announced today that founding CEO Nicole Hart will leave the organization after six years at the helm.

“When I started ARVets, it was my intent to build a non-profit that would strengthen the veteran support network in Arkansas,” Hart said. “Over six years, we have built hundreds of partnerships, brought new resources to the veteran community, and been able to watch veteran families lead better lives as a result. It has been an honor to serve my country in uniform, serve our state as part of the Beebe administration, and now to help bring ARVets to life.”

Under Hart’s leadership, ARVets has brought in more than $5 million for services in the veteran community, directly helping more than 6,000 individual veterans and veteran families, and impacting 30,000 of the state’s 250,000 veterans through partnerships. ARVets has created Arkansas’s first signature black-tie event celebrating the veteran community and its supporters, the Salute Gala, as well as the Love our Heroes Luncheon, which provides free lunch for military, veterans and their families, and the PTSD 5k Run, bringing awareness to the ongoing battle veterans fight against Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Have you ever wanted to help a veteran struggling with PTSD? Here’s your chance. ARVets PTSD 5K Awareness Walk/Run will be held on Saturday, June 10, 2017 on the Little Rock side of the Big Dam Bridge.

A friendly competition will be held between various branches of the armed forces to determine which branch has the fastest runners. A run clock, iced towels, and bottled water will be available free of charge.

The race will include the singing of the national anthem, a personal testimony from a veteran with PTSD, and medal coins will be awarded for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.

Team prices are $250 and individual prices are $30. Teams consist of ten people. Please email joseph.crawford@arvets.org or call (501) 246-5341 for information. Click here to register for the race.

Our fourth annual Love Our Heroes luncheon, held on Valentine’s Day, 2017, was a big success thanks to contributions from local businesses, support from our volunteers, and your donations.

Active-duty military, veterans, and their families were able to eat lunch free of charge. Whole Hog Cafe, Moe’s Southwest Grill, and Starbucks respectively provided barbecue, chips n’ salsa, and coffee for the main course.

One hundred people attended the event and were automatically entered into a raffle with various prizes. Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge handed out some of these prizes, including several Dell computer monitors, year-long premium memberships to 10Fitness, and free classes at Painting with a Twist.

Thank you to all of our sponsors, donors, and volunteers who made this event a success. We hope that this event demonstrated a fraction of the love that our veterans have demonstrated to us through their selfless service. Please click here to see a photo album of the event.
